Happy Selfie Day! Well, that’s what ALDImobile tell us it is, but it’s a good time to look at how to take the best selfie!
ALDImobile did some research and reckon that four out of five Aussies have taken a selfie, while 1.5 million Aussies snap a photo of themselves once a day!!
So to celebrate, here’s five great ideas to make your next selfie a great one!
You look like a goose using one, but gee wiz the results can be excellent – a much different perspective and more in the shot.
I found one at the shops yesterday for $35, but you’ll find them online at much lower prices
Wide angle lens
We first had a look at the Olloclip a couple of years ago and since then they’ve added handheld gadgets and lights as we saw at CES but at it’s core the Olloclip concept is about putting a new lens on your phone.
The Core lens kit will give you not only zoom lens, but also a wide-angle lens which is ideal for Selfies, to make sure you get everyone in, or get in a bunch of the background too!

So you love taking selfies at night or in dark seedy clubs? Light a problem? No more. These phone cases have a set of LED lights around the edge, activated by a simple press of a button on the back and you’ve got light right where you need it.
Your phone’s front camera is probably half as good as the one on the back – if that. So when you’re in the market for your next phone consider the full specs.
Oppo’s R9s has a 16 megapixel camera front and back, plus up front it has a beauty mode which puts a photoshop finish on things in real time.
Honestly, this thing is amazing. Expensive ($829.95) but amazing.
Turn it on, open it up, press a button, release. It just flies. You teach it your face so it goes looking for you!
This is the ultimate selfie gadget!
